(Video length: 17:04) Our elementary friends are learning about humility this month! We talk about being humbled this week and what that means. We see the example of Jesus in the last moments of his life, particularly when he goes to pray in Gethsemane, then is betrayed by one of his friends and the rest of them run away. But, this was all part of God’s plan - because God loves us SO much.

Parent Cue App

 

As a parent, some of the most important things you do for your child don’t happen in a single day. You make small deposits in their life week after week—over time. That’s why the Parent Cue App gives weekly cues to help you make the most of the time you spend with your kid or teenager. These weekly cues will change with your child, staying relevant to their phase of life—from babies to high school. Each cue aligns with our weekly Kidsrock content developed by Orange, a non-profit ministry that creates resources for churches. The app will connect you with Bible stories and verses to talk to your child about, and we’ll cue you with words to say and things to do connected with the naturally occurring times that already happen every day like morning time, meal time and bed time. It’s also available in Spanish.

 

Resources

  • Wondering what to say if your kid asks, “Why did God send the coronavirus?” 
    • “God probably didn't send the coronavirus (not like the plagues on Egypt). God doesn't want anything bad for us, BUT here's the thing - God made the world and set us free to make our own choices. Humans (Us) haven't always made wise choices and that's led to sad things in our world like viruses that make people sick. We don't always understand why God doesn't stop these things when they are happening, but what we do know is that God loves us, is with us and will help us no matter what. And God understands that it can be really disappointing because we can't do all the things we had planned. Some of the things that we can do (since we can't hug our friends) is pray for each other - that we will stay healthy and help show God's love to people who might be sick or hurting or maybe lonely (because it can be lonely not being able to do things like tea parties!) - we can do that by dropping off groceries or a meal or even scheduling an “online” time to chat and drink tea together! We can also make cards or art to mail or drop off.”
